 This is still true in 6.0.  It could be fixed by defaulting the value of th=
 'KERNELS' variable in src/release/Makefile to 'GENERIC' which would result =
 GENERIC getting installed in /boot/GENERIC and bootable from the loader via=
 'boot GENERIC'.  However, as it is currently written, the GENERIC kernel=20
 wouldn't include any modules (axeing -DNO_MODULES in the .for loop in=20
 release.3 would fix this).
